Re: Winchester 223 WSSM
I agree, stick to calibers that you can practice with a lot. I would say the .223 if you are used to a .22. The .308 kicks a bit more, not a lot, but enough to cause a flinch if you aren't ready for it. .223 is super cheap, very accurate, and the guns are similarly handy as the wssm. If you are thinking about hunting that is a different story, as the .223 is a less than ideal for anything bigger than varmints. In that case, I would look at .308 or other popular calibers like .243.
